Down some German plain;

While the bugler's foolish tune
Pipes the reveille?
"Right dress!"—hear the sergeant
From Mainz across to Dover;
Tell me who the hell it wuz
Said the war "was over?"
Cleaning up a mass of wire,
Stained with clotted blood
Where the big trucks bog and mire
In the winter mud;
Full of filth and fleas and fuzz—
Cannoneer and drover,
Tell me who the fat-head wuz
